The very best bulls sell for very high pric~ whila the inferior ones often sell ~vary low. It is becau~ the stockman do not need them~ They never n~ded good bulls more than they do now and they will require them worse in years to come than in years past.--Field and Farm. Charles Goodnight, formerly of (3sic- redo but now of the Texas panhudlo, is working with a view to evolving a new breed of cattle that will be proof against blackleg and splenic fever. To this end ha has produced a mixture of buffalo and cattle that will reproduce itself. Mr. Goodnight says: "Besides their great weight and the extra quality of meat they are most probably immune from blackleg; they never eat lees; they nev- er lie with their backs down-hill, which oau~ much loss in weak cattle; they do not go into bog holes; they have the greater lungs of any animal on earth and they put on more flesh for what they eat than any other animals.--Field and Farm.

The force now numbers fifty men, and with an equipment for taking out ore as good se can be had the product of this excellent mine will be placed in the market with but little difficulty. The company has ordered a concentrat- ing mill of 100-ton eapamty which is ca- route, and will be put up near the mine upon arrival. The Eagla mine is producing some excellent ore and its owners are stimu- httad to even greater activity in devel- opment work. A force of eight men are at work in the Hortenee and good ore is being taken from this property. Fully 100 men are now employed in the camp, at good wages, and every resi- dent fools highly gratified with rmulta being attained.--Salida Mail. Among the grease that have received meet attention the past year bromsgrsm undoubtedly ranks first. More of it h~ b~n sown in this western country than of others and rmulte have been satis- factory. Many farmers have made more than the price of the land from s single crop of seed of brome. A good many, however, have made the mmtako of cut- ting the seed crop too early and a great deal of poor, chaffy seed has been the re- sult. When havested for seed, bromo grass should not be cut till dead ripe. The seed will then be plump and heavy and easy to separate from the chaff. It can be threshed on an ordinary threshing machine with all the wind cut off. The seed may then be recleaned on afanniug mill. The straw of a seed crop is readily eaten by all kinds of stock. This grass should be sown in early spring on land that has been plowed fairly deep and harrowed into good tilth. About twenty pounds of good, clean seed m sown to an sore. Like all the perennial greases, it sends up only a few seed heads the first mason. The second season it is at its b~t, yielding a large crop of either hay or sad. After that it becomes so thick and md bound that it does not throw up so many seed stalks, but make a dense growth near the ground' which makes the Inmture. It remains in this condi- tion indefinitely, unless plowed up or thoroughly diseed. After four or five y~trs it may be plowed up and sown to wheat and will then come up and make another finn crop of hay the year after the wheat ie harvested. To get rid of it plow shallow in the fall and deep again next spring. Then grow a cultivated crop, such as corn, potatoes or sugar bNtL--Field and Farm.

Ecgie is situ- ated in the heart of the famous "Journey of Death" desert, which is one of the most arid regions known, and the strike of water will prove far more valuable than an oil gusher. During the Mexican war, out of a column of 16,5 soldiers who attempted to cross the. desert, all but fourteen perished. Great excitement has boon created by the strike.

The block system is being introduced over the Union Pacific system from Omaha to Ogden, and between Denver end Kansas City and on the Denver- Cheyenne line. Under the operation of the block system only one train is allow- ed in a block, which is the distance be- tween telegraph stations, at one time. The semaphore system in combination with the block system renders it so thor. ocgh as to leave almost no possible chance of wrecks, exoevt from such causes as cannot be guarded against by an~ human agency, SNUG MANNER IN WHICH EATABLES ARE STOWED AWAY Methods by Which Stores Are Be- plcniahed Which Give Out l~n Route--The Boom For the Waiters. The Cooks and Their Work. The actual standing room in the car kitchen consists of an aisle only wide enough for two men to pass each other and about fifteen feet long. On one side Is an unbroken row of ranges, the very best sort invented, for when men do women's work they are not content with makeshift tools. On the other side is a steam table for keeping things hot, other tables and some of the re. frlgerators, for there are many. Hot water and cold Is held in cylinders which lie along the ceiling and look like the projectiles used on torpedo boats. One refrigerator is devoted exclusive- ly to fish, which lie shining el Mocks of clear ice as tempting as in any fish market. Until I had actually seen this refrigerator it had b~en my practice to refuse fish in traveling, feeling there was some mystery about its preserva- tion, but now--indeed, no such thing. I had fancied the whole menu cooked at once in enormous quantities, llke a sol- diers' mess at camp, and my fastidious car appetite had revolted and faded away during the first course, but now I eat with relish, knowing the condi- tion of the source of supply. Another refrigerator is entirely for meats and game, another for fruit, and even bread and cake are kept in a re- frigerator that they retain their mois- ture. Outside the kitchen there is a sacred icebox under lock and key, and no man tony put his hand therein ex- cept the steward or housekeeper of the dining car. There twenty-five kinds of wine are kept, and there will be shown to you, with a manner awed but proud, the royal family of champagne with cool, gold crowned heads sitting on an Icy throne. But, to go back to the kitchen, that apartment is occupied by three men all in white, with perhaps a blue cor- don for tradition's sake, who serve deftly and capably the hlveful of wait- ere that swarm at the open square at the inner end of the room. It Is a wise provision that prevents close con- tacts, for cooks are apt to be "redhot" at the crucial hour of dinner serving, and, besides, the car kitchen can con- taln no more men than the three cooks, who broll, roast, stew and fry the numberless faneles of the patrons' pal; ates. These men work hard. The head cook, whose salary is about $70 per month, stands farthest from the window where the waiters clamor and is a bit more serious. The middle cook, on $45 salary, is lively or sub- missive according to the man he ad- dresses, and the end cook finds time to chaff the owners of the dark faces who call orders, and sometimes he sings as happily as a conceited boy who fancies his future on the operatic stage. These three men make up the white capped trio we see peering out of the windows of the dining car as it slips into the station. All the other em- ployees of the train come into contact with passengers and have interesting experiences, but these are confined in the galley and are eager for scant glimpses at the station. Sometimes the car has a little balcony at the eud, where they can escape the heat of their quarters, a needed relief in sum- mer time. The waiters have a pantry adjoining the kitchen and opeutng into it o~y by the little square window with at counter on either side. When your or- der is given aud the walter disappears, this is where he has gone. Here are kept supplies of dishes and silver, and here It is the waiter makes up the dlshes of cakes, fruit and eheese you call for with which to tie up the ends of your appetite. Before the d:nlng car is drawn away from the caryards the special house- keeper who has it in charge must see that every sort of supply is on hand and in sufficient, but not too lavish, quantity. Sometimes there are ninety persons to feed. sometimes one-third that number, but the probable number on the various runs is known. In long Journeys there are commissary sta- tions along the way where the car may be restocked, but this is seldom neces- sary except with such perishables as cream and milk. Have you ever heard a porter agitating that subject with statlon employees at Buffalo or else- where? That means the emergency has arlsen In the dining ear. Such thlngs mlght easily happen tn a larder where demands are Irregular and mar- kets scores of miles away. It is a won. der they do not happen oftener when we reflect that economy In perlshnble things Is exacted from the steward housekeeper. Just before he sends his black com. mlssary to announce dinner to the hun- gering pasengers every man slips on Jacket and apron of whitest linen and by this little act of costuming is con. carted at once from the nondescript man of the streets Into the most spruce of servitors. Then, with everything ready in the Mtchen and wlth his flock of asslstants about him, the house- keeper of the dining car awaits the coming of hls guests. And In they come, thoughtless blessing takers, with never a reflection on the hours of prep- aratlon by the army of men that It has taken to give them the degree of comfort which is purchasable for a dollar blll.--AInslee's blagazlne.
